About the Apartment/ Location

Just a few blocks from Central Park and Morningside Park which has steps up to Columbia University. One block to C&B Trains and 2 cross town blocks to the 2/3 train. 15mins to midtown, 25mins to downtown. Easy access to either UWS or UES. These are just a few of the reasons I love living here. Please take a look at the reviews for confirmation and don't forget to ask for "my guide" to NY which includes lots of local info.

Or just stay in the neighborhood and enjoy the new cafes, restaurants, markets and coffee shops of the South Harlem renaissance... Trust me, you'll want to come back... I do..

The pad/ building. Doorman attended 7am till midnight (and 24hrs at the weekend), laundry, gym, communal garden and yard.

Contemporary furnishings in a good sized lounge plus dining space, separate galley style kitchen (with dishwasher etc), two full sized bedrooms, one with a King and the other with a double bed. Good walk in closet space in second bedroom and hanging closet in the first bedroom.

All modern electrical amenities. Fully provisioned premium channels cable feeds a 37inch LCD TV as does a DVD player. Fast cable modem internet with wireless (N for speedsters) .

Private yard space has a table, large umbrella and chairs for lounging. Please forgive the picture of the same. Whilst you may use the space in the winter, it is a touch chilly.

Neighborhood Happenings

So much is happening in sunny South Harlem, that I wanted to list a few of the newbi neighbors. Its getting kinda trendy here with

11/11 Update
Just returned from a week at the apartment and now a large and friendly tavern has been added to the corner of 116th and 8th Avenue. This kinda rounds out the neighborhood with a great friendly bar to compliment the happenings below. Don't worry about the bar happenings disturbing you though. As a friend pointed out when visiting recently the apartment is on the back of the building so its nice and peaceful despite the neighborhood getting a little more lively.

09/11 Update
Levain Bakery - the latest edition can be found in the East Hamptons, The UWS and now less than a block away. "Possibly the largest, most divine chocolate chip cookies in Manhattan." New York Times

Bier International - New bier garden, bar and restaurant on 113th

Chocolat Harlem - New Lounge/Restaurant that is drawing the weekend crowd which has just opened

Cafe Amrita - Its actually been there for a while, but worth a mention for its great coffee to grab as you step out of the park from your morning walk.

Best Yet Market - a great new "supermarket"/ grocery store, just one block up between the Starbucks and the Chase Bank

Aloft (W Hotels Concept) - the Grandaddy of them all from a trendy point of view... The first big new hotel in the area is a W by Starwood, replete with a WXYZ Lounge which is just about as trendy as you can get. Opened December 9, you could stay here instead, at between 7 and 12 times more per square foot. Oh and they'll charge $20 a night for wifi too...

It was an excellent place to stay and the people there were always very nice. would highly recommend this place and when I return I will for sure rent this apartment again. NY was very close and the bus was just on the other street, definitely loved it and recommend.

Die Wohnung war genauso, wie sie beschrieben und wie wir sie uns vorgestellt haben. Nach Downtown dauert es ein wenig mit der Bahn aber man kommt ganz wunderbar mit der nahegelgenen Metro überallhin. Es hat alles wunderbar geklappt und wir würden sofort wieder buchen.

Schöne, gut ausgestattete Wohnung. Verbesserungswürdig sind aus meiner Sicht lediglich fehlende Nachttische bzw. Leuchten oder wenigstens Lichtschalter am Bett. Auch fehlten Teelöffel. Am Anreisetag war die Wohnung zu kalt, eine zweite Bettdecke wurde immerhin angeboten. Die Sicherheit in der Nachbarschaft kann von uns nicht objektiv beurteilt werden, wir haben uns aber subjektiv nicht immer sicher gefühlt. Gut ist, dass der Bus b15 in unmittelbarer Nähe hält und sogar eine Direktverbindung vom/zum JFK-Airport, Terminal 5 für $ 2,75 ermöglicht! Der Transfer zwischen den einzelnen Terminals mit dem airtrain ist kostenlos.
